The Litigator's Damages Blueprint
The Pragmatic Solution

Not a how-to-calculate-damages book, but a process that The BERO Group calls
"The Pragmatic Solution" which can help you manage your damages case.

The Pragmatic Solution

This handbook offers a structure to engage fully with your damages analysis as you move from early preparation up to and through trial. The Pragmatic Solution method will guide you through your work with your damages expert and help you develop a well-reasoned analysis that aligns with your liability case.
